en Nights for Holiday Shoppers First Evening on Schedule Nov. 29 Extra Time to Complete Gift Lists While Assortments Are Large and Varied Carroll stores will be open eleven nights for the convenience of holiday shoppers in addition* to the usual Friday night openings. The dates for the night open- Air Conditioning o is Newest Necessity With the number of homes equipped with central air conditioning soon to e x c e e d the three-million mark, a spokesman for the home building industry has dubbed air conditioning "the newest necessity" for American families. These predictions are being borne out by the increasing number of builders whose homes-for-sale feature electric air conditioning, along with other major electric equipment. Those builders who do not install the central air-conditioning unit itself very often provide the necessary duct-work and insulation, making it easy and economical for the homeowner to have the air conditioning unit added at a later date. According to Edison Electric Institute, builders and buyers alike are beginning to realize that any house without air-conditioning may well be obsolete within a few years. In some areas today, it is difficult to sell or rent homes and apartments without air conditioning. Families now want the same comfort standards in their homes that they enjoy in offices, stores and restaurants. It is easiest to install whole- house air conditioning while the home is under construction. It then becomes a part of the initial mortgage-package, so financing is painless. Because of the growing demand, central air conditioning adds resale value to any house. Thus, it can be considered as an investment, rather than an extra expenditure. Christmas Carols Christmas carols have been sung since the 14th century when the true religious carols came into being. The word "carol" originally meant a ring dance accompanied by a song, and before the 14th century carols spoke of love, courtship return of spring and feasting. Christmas hymns were sung long before the carols, but they were sung in solemn Latin. The caroling custom originated in England in about the 18th century. Watchmen, called Waits, patrolled the streets and the name later began to apply to town musicians who carried tunes from door to door. ings were approved by the retail bureau of the Carroll Chamber of Commerce. Carroll stores will be open until 9 p.m. on the dates listed. Shoppers can make their Christmas purchases early on Wednesday, Nov. 29, the first night scheduled for general store openings. The stores will also be open Monday, Dec. 11 and 18; Tuesdays, Dec. 12 and 19; Wednesdays, Dec. 6, 13, and 20; and Thursdays, Dec. 7, 14, and 21. Stores will also be open every Friday night as usual. Chamber officials pointed out the late closing hours will give parents a chance to make family shopping excursions that will not conflict with school hours and will offer leisure shopping time to individuals whose jobs coincide with store hours. The late hours will give shoppers in the Carroll trade area extra time to complete their gift lists early when assortments are large and varied. Later in the season, the stores will be open for the always present last minute buying trips. Duane Taphorn has been appointed chairman of the Chamb e r's Christmas committee. Other members of the committee are Martin Maher, Paul Collison, Bill Hammen, and Ed Thompson. White Yule Traditional as Plum Pudding For a quarter of a century people have been sentimentally dreaming their way through a "White Christmas." It was in 1941, the black- clouded war years had already begun, when Hollywood released a motion picture entitled: "Holiday Inn." The star of this movie was the ever- popular crooner, Bing Crosby. But perhaps the real star of "Holiday Inn" was the song written especially for the movie by Irving Berlin: "White Christmas." Through the ensuing 25 years, over 100 versions of the song have been recorded by almost as many artists, yet "W h i t e Christmas" is synonymous with the name of Bing Crosby. The poignant Christmas mes sage that's found in the song has made it popular 'round the world. It has been translated into Italian, French, Chinese German, Spanish, Hungarian the Scandinavian languages, several Polynesian tongues and even Swahili. Make It An Electric Christmas . . . with a compact stereo system or stereo tape-listening and recording system. The compact features automatic turntable, direct coupled all-silicon output circuitry, stereo tuner and extended range speakers.

Servants Await You in Gold Medallion Home You needn't be a millionaire in order to have a home with "servants". In Gold Medallion Homes you'll find a whole staff of electrical servants, ready and waiting, to help with the work. In order to qualify for the Gold Medallion a home must contain at least four major electric appliances. One appliance must be an eleqtric range. It can be built- in or free-standing, but it must be electric, so that Mrs. Homemaker can enjoy the cleanliness and accuracy of cooking. An electric range cooks the food — not the kitchen. That's why electric kitchens are always cool, even when the oven and surface units all are in use. A new electric refrigerator or combination refrigerator- freezer also will be found in every Gold Medallion Home kitchen. It's sure to blend right in with the cabinets and may occupy less space than older refrigerators. But don't let that fool you! Electric refrigerators today are slimmed down in appearance only — not in food- keeping capacity! Third on the list of "required" appliances is an electric water heater. Like the other electric servants, it's ready and waiting to provide a constant supply of hot water. The electric water heater is so quiet and needs so little attention, you might not know it's there. Because it's electric, it could even be hidden in a closet, behind the stairs — or under a counter. But you can always count on it to keep the water hot, 24 hours a day. The fourth electric servant in every Gold Medallion Home is chosen by the builder from a list of "optional" major electric appliances. Yule Season Alwayi a Memorable Time For the children, this is the very best Christmas that ever was. The adults agree — buit still, they look back a little wistfully at the Christmases of yesteryear, with nostalgic thoughts of "a good old-fash ioned Christmas," or of a spe cial Christmas memory. Memories enhance the sea sonal joys, and with good rea son, for Christmas is a mem orable time. Since the firs Holy Night, some of the most important events of both religious and secular history have taken place ait the Christmas season. ; A look at the past reveals momentous occasions, joyous or poignant, as well as many of the little things that give bygone times living meaning— and all taking place on or about Christmas Day. Sharing With Vets Brings True Spirit Carroll's American Legion Auxiliary will be sending $24 worth of gifts to the Veterans Administration Hospital at owa City this year as part of he Iowa Department's annual "ihristmas Gift Shop project.

Sheets Inspire Yule Sleepwear Christmas pajamas may be replacing the tie as the favorite gift item for dear old Dad and the bright-eyed young executive. Major pattern companies report that more home sewing of men's sleepwear is done at Christmas than any other time of the year. This season proves to be the one that's merriest from the standpoint of men's fashions, and sleepwear's no exception. Bold designs and lively colors are replacing the once-typical dull colors and staid prints. If you're planning to stitch up pajamas or a night shirt for the males on your Christmas gift list, you may find one of the best fabric sources in the bedding department. New collections of cotton sheets lend themselves well to sleepwear. For example, one all-cotton sheet is patterned in a hand 1 some Jacobean crewel design that converts into stylish pajamas. Two twin-size sheets will make pajamas with a slip- on top. Pattern borders of the sheets can be used for "cuffs" at the wrists and ankles and a contrasting hem around the Cook Yule Dinners the Electric Way The next best thing to having someone do the cooking for you this holiday season is to do it the electric way! Even when you're using the broiler or oven, electric cooking keeps the kitchen and you up to 12 degrees cooler. Good cooks prefer electric cooking, because it lets them concentrate on the creative side of holiday food preparation. Nothing is more discouraging than the failure of a prized recipe — because the heat got too high or too low! But creative cooks know they can rely on the precise temperature controls offered by electric ranges, both on the surface and in the oven. If you're planning to move and love to cook, a total-electric Gold Medallion Home or Apartment is the one for you! If it's just a new kitchen you're after, ee the fabulous new electric anges on display in dealers' tores! In either case, discuss •our cooking needs with the lome Service Department of /our electric utility. They can lelp you choose the electric 'ange that's right for you. pajama top. Another sheet design appropriate for men's sleepwear is in a "jungle cat" pattern with black hems. Use two twin- size sheets for a masculine- looking night shirt, complete with black collar and pocket trim made from the sheet hem. Suitable patterns for easily- made pajamas and night shirts are offered by most of the major companies. If the object of your sewing efforts is an extra special guy, you might want to accompany the sleepwear item with a gift of sheets, pillowcases or towels in the same colorful print.
